The Taste of Canadian Sun, Grass, and Soil
Yui Aida is a dessert chef and food painter from Tokyo, Japan. She uses naturally grown local ingredients to create desserts, no dairy, no egg.
Drawing inspiration from fresh and native ingredients wherever she goes, Yui’s goal is to “see the land, eat a thing of the land, and create a dish using ingredients from the land”.
For this year’s “TAIWANfest – The Kitchen of Sweetness”, I put a program together to inspire this Japanese artist, who has a wondrous imagination with meticulous observation skills, to incorporate naturally grown Canadian local ingredients into her dessert creations.
Are you curious what the sun, grass, and soil taste like?
